Kaylee and Brendan – 1/03/2018
Gold Coast Botanic Gardens in the Gold Coast
Kaylee and Brendan had booked my services nearly 18 months before their actual wedding. Normally I recommend booking your wedding photographer around 12 months before your wedding date, however earlier the better.
Kaylee and Brendan had their ceremony at the Gold Coast Botanical Gardens, and it was a very warm day. So warm in fact, that it was difficult for people to stand in the full sun. Kaylee and Brendan however, had their ceremony under a massive gum tree which made a big difference for peoples comfort, and for the wedding photography.

After the ceremony, we had a short break which allowed Kaylee and Brendan to chat to their guests. If time permits, I always allow a short time after the ceremony to let your guests say hello to the bride and groom. I like to let the day unfold naturally which allows for some great candid photos. We then did the group and family shots and then commenced the bridal party photos and bride and groom photos.
The Gold Coast Botanical Gardens allows for some great wedding photography. On this particular day, I opted to find shade (for obvious reasons). We found a nice little pocket of bamboo trees which gave an interesting background. We then took a short walk to a bush track which was also a great background. We stopped after 60 minutes so the bridal party could get back to the reception and have a drink and cool off.
The reception was held at The Vibe in Surfers Paradise. A nice little establishment that was perfect for the intimate crowd of Kaylee and Brendan’s weddings. As soon as they walked into the reception, they cut the cake which is becoming more and more popular. Kaylee and Brendan decided to get my 5 hour package, which suited them perfectly. I started at 2:30pm at the ceremony at the Gold Coast Botanical Gardens and finished at 7:30pm, once all of the formalities were done.
